lets say a draft came up in which Raptors recieved first pick and there were clones of both chris paul and howard on the board. you would know that these clones' careers would turn out exactly like paul and howard. who would you pick and why? i would pick paul because pure point guards should be the anchor of a team and it is much easier to build around an elite pg than an elite centre.

Interesting question.

I'd give Chris Paul the nod. He's an elite point guard that raises the level of everyone around him. He can take over games on both ends of the floor, and we need a player that can do that.

Howard and pair em with bargs, D is covered and so is rebounding, therefor Bargs can go stand deep and drain his shots (if he can hit em) and we draft or sign a playmaking PG and let em go.

Course Howard
Do you saw Howard and Paul this year? Howard improved his offense while Paul looks lost after that injury. 2 years back, Hornets was top team in the west, now they just fighting for play-offs spot. And Paul averaging only 16 point's per game now.
I know it's C and PG, but come on, different levels, Howard all the way.

Dwight Howard.

A center as dominant, and athletic, as Howard is something I wouldn't pass on.

Which one would you say other stars clamour to play with more though? That means something also to a franchise.

Shaq in his prime for sure. Howard isn't anywhere close to the offensive abilities Shaq had in his prime

Shaq. It's not even close.

He was literally a monster in his prime.

Our defense is so shitty. We need a last line of defense and Howard fits that role. He would alter almost every shot taken in the paint. Him and Caldy would be connecting like crazy on alley-oop plays. If some athletic point guard blows by Caldy you still have Howard as a last line of defense. Also, Bargs wouldn't have to do shit inside the paint, he could just camp at the 3 point line all day.
